Life is a rose, beware of the thorns. - Unknown

This Valentines' day...is it

A stem of rose or a bouquet of roses?

With its leaves hiding thorns

What message would you convey?

♥♥♥~

Could it be red, pink, orange, lavender or white

The expression of emotions and devotions?

The longing and desire, heartfelt sorrow and regret

Or the joy of admiration and gratitude?

♥♥♥~

Pure in white, bearing purity and chastity

Conveying humility and spirituality?

The signs of innocence, grace and elegance,

Whiff with sweetness of heaven, untainted and divine?

♥♥♥~

Could it be the pretty yellow expressing exuberance,

Of a platonic love caring and welcoming,

Drawing energy and zesty feelings of companionship,

Cheerfulness and binding love?

♥♥♥~

Would it come in a bunch of fascinating orange hues?

Uttering intense desire, pride and fervor

With the intriguing attitude that rivals with the red

Would the message comes with passion and of fiery blaze?

♥♥♥~

Or is it the enchantment of lavender waiting

Like love at first sight at times elusive and mysterious,

Bearing sense of royalty, glory and holy

The sure face of comfort and tranquility?

♥♥♥~

Would it be evoking signs of peace and harmony?

Signifying opulence and prosperity

In its special shades of rare green

Bearing good wishes for a new life and good health?

♥♥♥~

A bouquet of roses is a bouquet of emotions

Be careful with the thorns they could prick you deep,

May send message of confusions and of mixed sensations

A gesture of kindness, a feeling of likeness and of LOVE.

♥♥♥~

      Hello there Rolly! Thank you so much for stopping by. I'm having difficulty catching up these days...flying is crazy and I miss HP and its lovely people. So, thank you. It's always good to hear from you. Love from the sky~

      Hi CrisSp... Very well done my friend. Your gift you have been given shines through with this hub.

      The rose speaks many languages but one that is heard throughout time is the language of love.

      Spoken words carry far more feelings and will capture emotions long after the rose wilts and passes.

      Both can have thorns to be aware of yet the true meaning is the same when given and spoken with love.

      Hugs and Blessings from the West... Wave on your next flight over...

      Cris, I can almost smell the roses. They are so beautiful! My son just brought me a single red rose. He put a huge smile on my face and in my heart with that gesture!
